Never let it be said that Venezuela doesn't contribute to the advancement of mankind....

Flatulence-free beans have been developed by Venezulian scientists, but perhaps more usefully they are also super-nutritious which is important as beans are a cheap and key source of nutrition in the developing world.

Flatulence is caused by bacteria that live in the large intestine breaking down parts of food -such as soluble fibre - that have not been digested higher in the gut

Beans, such as the black bean commonly eaten across Central and Southern America contain many of these compounds.

So no more anti-social side-effects, are ad slogans such as 'Benz Meanz Fartz' on the way out?! It's the end of an era.

Oh for those that do fart from time to time there was reassurance in the BBC article I got this from: "Despite the obvious social concerns, there is no physiological harm from the flatulence caused by eating beans and other legumes, and considerable nutritional benefits from eating them owing to fibre content as well as a wide range of other nutrients and phytonutrients."

So there you go; you will not harm yourself by breaking wind, but I can't speak for others...
